Leo messi I hoped that after the arrival of Joan Laporta to the presidency of Barça, those so rare and strange signings that were made with Josep María Bartomeu will end. Because he ended up tired of wasting money, which has later caused the financial problems they have, in players who did not contribute anything. Douglas Pereira, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Jeison Murillo or Aleix Vidal were clear examples of this. And they still drag some of them into the template.
Matheus Fernandes, Martin Braithwaite or Francisco Trincao are also part of that list. However, the Barcelona captain could not help showing his surprise when he heard the latest rumors that put a player in the orbit of Ronald Koeman’s team, and it is said that there would already be advanced talks. That is none other than Caio Henrique, who apparently likes a lot on the board, and who know that it would have a very affordable price.
Formed in the Santos quarry, he already had an experience in La Liga Santander, specifically, in the ranks of Atlético de Madrid. There he arrived to reinforce the youth team, and he settled in the subsidiary, but he never had the confidence of Diego Pablo Simeone, who did not give him opportunities in the first team. For this reason, he began a journey of assignments that led him to defend the shirts of Paraná, Fluminense or Gremio de Porto legre. Until last summer he signed for AS Monaco.
Eight million euros were paid by those of El Principado, for this left-back who began his career as a playmaker and midfielder. For this reason, it has such technical quality, which allows it to put very precise centers. To that, his speed and power are added, although, when defending, he already has more deficiencies. But, at 23 years old, he has been one of the great revelations of Ligue 1, and has been one of the key pieces of Niko Kovac’s men.
At the Camp Nou they closely monitor the Brazilian, who would not have a price higher than 20 ‘kilos’.
But it is an option that does not have the approval of Messi.
